A pleasure to see some of those old publicity adverts again. There's no doubt that BMC/BL had a superb publicity department, full of brilliant publicists. But in my experience, what let them down was their sales and marketing. Dealing with them was like banging your head against the door

The old 'Fine Fare' supermarket (now M&S) below Tolworth Tower, near the A3 Kingston bypass and just a short walk from the Surbiton Cooper Workshop in Hollyfield Road.

Talking of cars in shops, like thoise above. I was in Carlisle in the summer of 2000 and there was a Red Rover Cooper Sport parked INSIDE Marks and Spencer. Extolling shoppers to buy one while they could! I'm glad I did now, but many months later - but not at the UK price

How lucky were Mini owners in the 60s to have such tasteful accessories available to them 🤮
